On this trip I have enjoyed a few opportunities to return to my first photographic love, landscapes. There really is nothing like waiting for the light. Time slows down. Senses are heightened to notice the rhythmic wash of waves on the shore, the eerie cry of a solitary gull, the way the light touches the crests of the breakers, the curve of wet rocks at the shore’s edge, the drift of the clouds. How could I have forgotten?
This shot is from my iPhone and not exactly top quality – iPhone4’s camera is good but struggles in low light. The proper shots will have to wait until I get home. But even if none of them prove worthy, the experience was magical.
Who needs to travel to the Caribbean for unspoiled empty beaches? This is Ouaisne Bay on Jersey in the Channel Islands, photographed in the middle of the day during the school summer holidays. Straight from iPhone.
Our summer trip continues. We are now on Jersey in the Channel Islands. The day began for the family with surfing in St.Ouen’s Bay while I enjoyed a two hour photowalk along the sands. Then it was waffles and strawberries for breakfast. Perfect. These shots were taken with my iPhone.
I love shooting macro into the light. You never know quite what you’re going to get, which is a huge part of the fun. In this image, I enjoy the rim lighting on the bumble bee as it visits verbena bonariensis in my garden. Incidentally, if you are looking to plant for wildlife, this verbena is a must.
I am blogging from my iPhone tonight with an image taken by my iPhone. I think we have seen Lyme Regis in all moods this week. Today we have endured high winds and driving rain. This image, of Lyme in gentler mood, is from last week.
